Astaxanthin Introduction

Astaxanthin, a reddish pigment, is a carotenoid derived from marine micro algae Haematococcus pluvialis. As an antioxidant, it can be used to treat certain diseases. Astaxanthin is also commercially synthesized for use in fish farming. What’s more, Astaxanthin is also commercially used to improve color.

Where are Astaxanthin extracted from?

Astaxanthin, a reddish pigment occurring in nature primarily in ocean plant life, belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. Originally, it is produced by plants, fungi and bacteria, but most prevalent in micro-algae (Haematococcus pluvialis). When the Haematococcus pluvialis algae are in times of stress, specifically when they are exposed to change in their environment such as direct sunlight, starved of food or being eaten, it produces astaxanthin to protect itself. As a potent antioxidant, astaxanthin protects the algae from free radicals and oxidative stress, keeping it alive and well when stressed. When fish and crustaceans feed on algae, the pigment transfers to their bodies to alter the natural color of the species. This is why fish such as salmon have a pinkish hue. Other seafood known to feed on algae includes shrimp, trout, crayfish and krill.

Astaxanthin Benefit and Dosage

1. Antioxidant

Astaxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family that has antioxidant properties. Astaxanthin has been found to be a powerful antioxidant possessing upwards of 100 times and 10 times greater capacity to neutralize reactive oxygen species (ROS) than vitamin E and beta-carotene, respectively. This effect can protect cells against free radical attack.

Recommended dosage —— 4 to 12 mg daily (Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble carotenoid that should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption.)

2. Eye problems

Astaxanthin is known to be an antioxidant that can bioaccumulate in eye tissues, similar to the known macular pigments Lutein and zeaxanthin; similar to the other carotenoids, astaxanthin may also play a protective role and particularly against age-related macular degeneration. In the eyes, astaxanthin has been noted to protect cellular DNA from UV(A) radiation,

Recommended dosage —— 4 mg to 12 mg a day (Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble carotenoid that should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption.)

3. Anti-Aging (skin health)

Topical application of a cream containing astaxanthin appears to improve elasticity and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and there may be a moisturizing effect only present in those with dry skin. Astanxathin is thought to be beneficial for the skin due to its lipid soluble properties and accumulation in the skin following administration. Oral supplementation of the standard doses of astaxanthin also appear to be beneficial for the skin in the same ways that topical application is.

Recommended dosage —— A cream containing 0.094% of astaxanthin, or 4 to 12 mg of astaxanthin daily (Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble carotenoid that should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption.)

4. Indigestion

Some research shows that taking astaxanthin can inhibit the growth of a bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori, and reduce symptoms of indigestion.

Recommended dosage —— 40 mg per day of astaxanthin (Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble carotenoid that should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption.)
